they were just screenshots. I was super tired. Although compressed, it's was actually a good representation of what I saw in raw.

I just wanted to provide all information. I just stepped up from iso 100, as per your suggestion, and took a picture of the same subject, and the spots first appear at iso 320.

It sounds like these are hot pixels, but I'm stunned at their appearance at such a low ISO value. Dealing with this in post is not an option. This shouldn't be an issue for a $600 camera, let alone a $2k camera. IMO.

Thanks for the looks and suggestions pete! I'll have to stop by my local shop and speak with them.
